don't think anyone in america is necessarily going hungry. but i think it is morally wrong to create a situation for people that are trapped. ph.d says it is hard to get off the program now, if we make it more enticing h much more difficult will it be to get off the program? melissa: what do you think answer is? >> the answer is a robust economy. melissa: yeah. >> the answer is the economy where we're not looking to divvy up the spoils but create new prosperity for everyone the forget about trickle up or trickle down, grow the pie. grow the pie. not cut it up in little bity pieces. grow it more exponentially the will be more opportunities. melissa: more jobs. >> the message comes along with this, message of victimization. the message that people don't like you. that would help a lot if politicians turn that around say listen, because you get a certain amount of food stamps and not more doesn't mean other people across the other side of town dislike you. i wish the leaders, people who had the ear of a lot of people would take the time to promote a different message but that's not the

businesses at a time where we are expecting small businesses to be the engine of job creation in america. ernst and young has made it clear that jobs would be at risk. it is as simple as that. [inaudible question] >> well, we really should not be. i have argued going back to spring. this issue had to be dealt with. in may, the house removed a bill to replace this a question or with other cuts and mandatory spending. the president still is not serious about dealing with this issue right here. when i talk about pulling, most americans would agree that spending is a much bigger problem than raising taxes. they want us to do with this in a responsible way. [inaudible question] >> unfortunately, that is the case we are dealing with today. [inaudible question] >> i do not understand what the question is. everyone's income taxes are going to go off on january 1. i have made it clear that i think that is unacceptable. until we get this issue resolved, that risk remains. >> can you describe how difficult it is to craft a deal, while not jeopardizing your job as speaker that i am not concerned abo
camp. working with senator snowe, we brought that little girl to the united states of america. she's alive here today, married and living in an american citizen. so what did olympia snowe do? she saved jobs and she saved lives, and i'm proud to be par part -- work with her. and we're going to miss her. and then there's my good friend, kay bailey hutchison, who's just come to the floor. and i'm glad she's going to be here to hear what i've got to say about her. i hold her in such enormous high esteem. now, senator kay bailey hutchison is known for her competence, her strong character, and being an outstanding champion for texas, an advocate for women, and a real patriot, dedicated to serving our nation. i, too, know her as a dear friend, someone deeply committed to creating that zone of civility among the women of the senate. when senator hutchison arrived in the senate in 1983, this is -- there were -- there were prickly politics beginning to emerge. she had come from the texas legislature and knew the dynamics of a rum and tumble legislative -- a rough and tumble legislative body.
